The Hulkster and I go thrifting

Thrift Finds: My weekly bragging blog.
(items 2-5 were all 3.00 or less. Thrift stores are your friends.)

1. Spring stock closet: Organized! I set very few goals for my week off, but getting this closet in order was one of them. I'm sure it will be a mess any day now, but let us all marvel at its current color ordered glory. Everything here will be available in the eBay shop over the next few months.

2. Bird Bag: I love this silly vintage purse. I snapped it up this afternoon, and plan on carrying it as soon as tomorrow. I'm sure this one will end up in the store shortly, but for now it it mine.

3. Forever 21 Dress: Seriously, who doesn't love ruffles? Since I will sell every sweet vintage sun dress I own in the next few months, it is nice to know that I will have a few pieces of clothing left to call my own. This F21 dress was three dollars, and will be an easy choice during the upcoming FL summer.

4. Curtains: Yay! It has been such a struggle finding curtains to go with my orange (aka sunset heat) colored bedroom. The east facing window in my bedroom has been killing me. Now all I need is to install a curtain rod of some kind, and the day star will no longer get the chance to wake me up at 7am. Take that sun!


5. Hulk Hogan Thunder Mixer: That's right! I found this fantastic piece of kitchenware for a cool $1.99. I'm pretty sure all it does is spin liquid around, but who cares? Check out the Hulkster in his yellow cowboy boots. He makes me wonder why the guy selling the Magic Bullet doesn't wear a full spandex outfit. I bet it would boost sales. Also, please check out the lady all the way to the right. Her expression says it all.

Happy Thrifting,

Team Carlos... 8th place.

"Who are the boca burgers for? Yeah, that girl looks like she's a vegetarian."

Thank you? I guess I will take that as a compliment.

This is what I wore to the barbecue on Saturday. It was gloriously warm, and I didn't need a jacket until after the sun set. I enjoyed veggie burgers, cocktails, and a bar games tournament. My team came in last place in the tournament of darts, bean bag toss, and pool. :( The boy was paired up with my friend Kat though, and came in second place. He's amazing at darts, while I have been know to injure bystanders up to 10 feet away. Such is life.  I hope your weekends were equally lovely.

You're the one I love.

Five things I love Friday. These are my current obsessions.

1. Daisy Chains


Don't you think they're the friendliest flower?" ~Meg Ryan in You've got mail.

Agreed. I am not typically a lover of flowers. In fact, one summer of working at a florist when I was 15 made me hate roses with a passion. Daisies are okay though. They are friendliest, prettiest weeds I can think of. And honestly, who wouldn't love to sport a daisy chain headband this spring?

2. Rainbow Donkey Pinatas

Nothing says party like a rainbow donkey pinata. I have one set aside for the barbecue this Saturday.

3. Vintage Aprons

Let's pretend here that I cook. Let's pretend that I bake delicious cakes and cookies. Let's pretend that I have ever even used my oven, and do not use it as a space for storage. If we pretend all that, then can't we pretend that I need pretty vintage aprons? I want all of these.

4. Cherry Chapstick

This one is simple, and should have been simple to find images for. However, it was not. Go ahead and type "cherry chapstick" into google images. There are a disturbing amount of Katy Perry images.

5.  Nancy Zhang on

I love this girl's look. She puts together the most inspiring outfits. I am even more enamored with the way she presents them with matching drawings. Take a peek at her lookbook and blog.

Have a great weekend ladies.
